Bottle 330ml. Exceptional stout. Aromas of chocolate, raisins, dark fruit, and hints of vanilla. Taste starts sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

Every Japanese beer I’ve had in the last couple of years have been such exiting and often different treats. This lovely stout is a gorgeous chocolate and roasty bitter treat. I also got vanilla and quite a bit of salt from this. I want to go on a beer safari in Japan because of beers like this.

Strong chocolaty aroma. Perfect appearance - opaque black with ruby highlights with dense tan head, with great lacing. Good distinct bitterness, with a lot of chocolate. Very long lasting aftertaste. Great beer for such a simple style.

If you’re a Guinness fan, this might not be the beer for you. Had on tap in at Cheers Yokohama in Japan; Served at the perfect tempurature. Good coffee-like aromas, but not nearly as thick or smooth in the mouth as Guinness. It resembled more of a porter to me than a stout, but that’s exactly what I like. I will drink this beer every opportunity that I get!

Looks nice, black with some red highlights and great foam. Aroma of chocolate, tastes very smooth and dry with a little honey flavour. Soft carbonation makes it pleasant to drink.

EdKing (2095) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours black with brown edges and a nice foamy almost creamy off white head. Nose is roasted malt, but also a bit of zingy citrous hops. Taste is dominated by the roasted malt, with coffee and touch of chocolate, but theres a really nice citrous hop undercurrent which gives this a broader depth. Very nice stout.

Crille (89) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
Pitch black color with a off-white head. The nose is full of biscuit, coffee and roasted malt. Very drinkable with its chocolate and coffee flavors.

Grumbo (822) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle at Tap East, Stratford, London. Excellent appearance, an extremely deep ruby brown colour, with an appealing lasting tan head delivering good lacing. Initial dry acidity made way for rich chocolate, and blackcurrant and raisin fruits. Good body, average-soft carbonation, this was an enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2015 On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a stemmed tuilip. Oil slick black with a nice soapy tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Slight coffee and chocolate aroma. As it comes to room temperature the chocolate flavor starts to stand out a little more. Oily mouthfeel with a nice dry finish. Also a bit of sourness on the finish that comes off as sour cherries. Very pleasant and solid stout from Baird.

asheft (2679) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2007
[on tap at Popeye] Vanilla and bubblegummy roasted barley aroma. Almost opaque, dark brown under a nitrogen foam cover. Nice oaky vanilly roast flavour with hazlenut and caramel accents. Also a little coffee and toastiness. Bitterness comes mostly from dark malts. Medium to full body with low carbonation and a not unpleasant, lingering malt bitterness.
